With sleek décor, a lively clientele, and a menu full of classic American crowd-pleasers, Corbin's has raised the bar on the definition of a local hangout. The bar serves up reasonably priced wines, specialty cocktails, and lots of beer, amusingly categorized as "corporations," "international conglomerates," and "artisans." Appetizers like stone-fired quesadillas and nachos are big enough to share, and main dishes run the gamut from hefty sandwiches and burgers to entrees like cheese- and chile-stuffed chicken draped in tomatillo cream sauce. Desserts like the warm homemade brownie with vanilla bean gelato provide a sweet conclusion.
After meaning to hit this neighborhood joint for 5 or 6 years, we finally got around to trying the grub at Corbin's. The wife had a steak, and I had their famed grilled cheese sandwich. The sandwich was good, although I don't know if it's worthy of an award... but the wife's steak was deemed 'nummy' and half of it even came home for her lunch the next day. Atmosphere is open and too loud to hold a decent conversation, and while our server was bubbly and eager, he wasn't very attentive to our requests ('slaw on a separate plate' came in the same bowl-thing that the sandwich did, for example). Open parking spaces in their tiny lots (there are two of them) are apparently a rare commodity, so we parked about a block away and hoofed it. Overall, not bad, but not knock-your-socks-off great either. Might give them another spin someday.
Good people-watching? In Sunnyslope? I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but indeed, there's plenty of action on north Central Avenue. I'm talking about Corbin's Bar & Grill, a three-year-old eatery that I recently discovered on a visit to the... More »
Like the late, great Rodney Dangerfield, Buffalo wings get no respect, no respect at all. The name "Buffalo" hardly engenders esteem, as that burg's other contributions to the culture include Millard Fillmore, Vincent Gallo and the Goo Goo Dolls.... More »
Fans of this stylish Sunnyslope bar/grill rave about its new-and-improved ceiling, which has done wonders for reducing the place's once-raucous noise level. But perhaps even better news is what hasn't changed at Corbin's -- the grilled cheese sandwich is still the best thing on sliced bread. Made with Cheddar, Swiss and quesa fresca, this sandwich is always perfectly toasted on the outside and creamy on the inside, with fat slices of tomato and crisp bacon for that extra oomph. The vegetaria... More »
It was only a matter of time before the North Central vibe crept into Sunnyslope. Drive along the bridle path on Central Avenue, over a slight hill, and there's Sunnyslope -- you can't miss it, it's marked with a huge "S" on a low mountain, right there. Before you hit the mountain, veer east into Corbins parking lot -- you can't miss that, either, it's painted a bright, obnoxious orange. To be truthful, there's much that's obnoxious about Corbins: It's obscenely loud, clearly no one's done... More »
